Sheriff’s deputies have evacuated the Kane County Circuit Clerk’s Office in St. Charles this morning.
Just after 10:30 a.m., deputies walked through and announced all visitors needed to leave the building because of a bomb threat.
A sheriff’s squad car was already outside the building just before 10:30. Minutes after the evacuation, a bomb and arson evidence truck arrived, and one person entered the building.
Patrons, attorneys and others sat outside, near the entrance, after the evacuation.
Clerk’s office employees were huddled in a parking lot behind the building.
Additional details were not immediately available from the sheriff’s office.
